Do You Need a Permit to Own a AR-15?
An AR-15 is 5.56mm semi-automatic rifle that is fed by a magazine and uses gas operation to discharge the empty cartridge and reload the new bullet. There are multiple sizes of the rifle depending on the manufacturer, and there are a number of add-on items that come along with the rifle. Some of these add-on items are regulated in the United States, and the sale of the rifle is heavily regulated in some states as well. There is not federal law that controls the use of the rifle. The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which incorporated the Assault Weapons Ban of 1994, banned the manufacturing and importing of the rifle along with other assault rifles, but the ban ended in 2004. The regulation of the rifle is now left up to the states, and several state regulations are described below:
Penal Code section 12276 subdivisions (e) and (f) made it unlawful to sell an AK or AR-15 series rifle after August 16, 2000 in the state of California.
In January of 2007, the Denver City Council passed a law that modified the city’s assault weapon ban. It is legal to own an AR-15 or other assault rifles if they do not contain a magazine with 21 or more rounds.
